Summary: These are versatile, strong sounding speakers that come with predictable Sony quality. When not in use they "nest" together and the cord wraps around for easy storage. The speakers run off an AC cord or three AAA batteries which means they can be taken anywhere. For better laptop sound, a way to play your MP3 player, iPod or phone with better sound quality, these are a great value.
Summary: I wanted a pair of small speakers to keep on my nightstand for the rare occasions when I want to listen to music from my cell when it's docked. I also wanted the speakers to look slick and unobtrusive; most small speakers take the form of cheap plasticky kiddie speakers, or worse, animal shaped. The other important factor I wanted was one that was powered by AC. These speakers fit that bill perfectly, and for a reasonable price.
Summary: I knew that my IBM ThinkPad R51 always had terrible speakers compared to an even older Dell Inspiron and a few Apple products starting from an iBook G4. I haven't been using R51 for a while, and then decided to use it again to play my old mp3 collection. Well, I couldn't stand the sound anymore! Ordered this little Sony set.
Summary: All the hype from Sony is correct. Nothing bad to say of these small speakers. Everything I was looking for -battery operated/AC adaptable, on/off, and volume control. Great sound from small speakers.
Summary: These little speakers are pretty good for their size (they are pretty small). They have a tendancy to break up on more heavy songs like system of a down while the volume is up high. I use them in a warehouse so I have to have them as loud as I can to hear them due to the noise, but they still do well. In a quiet area they do an awsome job.
Summary: These speakers will be a vast improvement over those installed on my laptop. The sound is great -- not tinny sounding in the least. My only complaint is that the volume is not quite as loud as I had hoped.
Excerpt: There are lots f portable speakers’ available in the market but the channel separation or stereo separation is hardily there as a consequence they make excellent players sound just acceptable. The basic problem with them being that keeping these speakers apart left and right is impossible since pulling one will invariably result in pulling the other one too.
Excerpt: Sony SRS M50B Ich habe ein iPhone 4, das ich eigentlich immer dabei habe. Jetzt ist es so, dass ich im Sommer natürlich gerne in unserer schönen Vorarlberger Natur unterwegs bin und mit Freunden Baden gehe. Das meistens an Seen oder Flüssen, da es einfach gemütlicher und nicht so überfüllt ist. Und dort ist Musik natürlich auch eine sehr gute Sache, wenn man mit Freunden zusammen ist. Letztenendes sind wir dann auf die Sony SRS M50B gestoßen.
Pros: Schönes Klangbild, Batterilaufzeit zufriedenstellend, Verarbeitung, sehr solide und robust
Cons: zu wenig Bass (bei der Bauweise aber auch kein Wunder), eventuell der Preis
